My Students

With many new students coming in from Puerto Rico due to hurricane Maria, my students need extra support. Students at this school are hard working learners. They may come from homes that are struggling. 73% of them are on free or reduced lunch, but that doesn’t stop them from wanting an education. The students are multiracial including 40% white, 31% Hispanic, 23% Black, 3% Asian, and 3% combination of races. This creates an environment of acceptance and tolerance for all. My challenge is to level the playing field, so that students with less opportunities are able to compete academically with those who have more opportunities.

Creating learning experiences for these students is the best part of my job; the joy on their faces as they are discovering something new and integrating knowledge into their “personal toolkits” is priceless.

In my learning environment, I endeavor to set them up to win in an environment that is inviting and comfortable. Sometimes that means school supplies, mending clothing, a bandaid, or a kind word. I believe this will not only help the students focus, but will also produce a higher level of work from the student. Teaching these young learners is a privilege.

My Project

With working in the Media Center at my school, I have the opportunity to work with pre-K through six grade. I love bringing new learning experience to my students. Coding is the new thing in technology right now. Botley will be the perfect coding robot.

This year we are working on STEM experiences and I think Botley the robot will help allow students to learn coding.

Botley is a little blue robot, that comes with huge learning opportunities. He is interactive and encourage students to take a risk, to try something new, and to learn in a pressure free way. I think this will be very useful for my younger students to get involved in learning how to code robots at an early age. I think these would make a great addition to the media center.
